    If it’s somebody who has hitting it hard for a while I’d recommend a deload or maybe even 7-14 days completely off.
    I think after you get in the groove and habit of going to the gym day after day, week after week it becomes almost addictive and the hardest thing to do is actually take a step back and realize that maybe you’ve dug the hole a little too deep.

    Sometimes you just need to listen to your body and take a break so you can come back even stronger!

    The hardest thing to do is to take an extended break. Look at Ronnie Coleman. I've been lifting weights since 1968, I was 10 years old. Started competing in 1980. Did a stint of powerlifting from 1984-1989. Last bodybuilding show was in 2010. Now to the point. The only time I took a break was when I had a surgery. All my surgeries were due to pushing myself in the gym. Constantly pounding it hard regardless of any red flags. My surgeries were knee, elbow, hernia,
    vein stripped out of leg, and a 5-level fusion (lumbar).
    You must take a break. Yes, I hate taking breaks. I want to be in the gym. Always.
    It's way too late to change my ways. I still have desire to compete in the 60+ division. I'm really close to going full throttle. It took me over 3 years to overcome the back surgery.. It was absolutely brutal. I'm glad I had the surgery done. My training has been consistent now for 4 years. I do take a 14 day break every 4 months. Strength is good. The movements I chose to do have not become an issue with my back. I do not squat now, but I can hack squat, which is an awesome exercise. Finally, I'm just grateful to be able to walk into the gym. God bless you all. We are in a great hobby, sport, obsession, or whatever you call it, but we need to treat it as a marathon and not a sprint. Take heed you young guys. I've seen it all, I've done it all. Peace out!

    I usually give myself a break, try to eat well and sleep well, and then I'm typically ready to go at it again.

    this works great every-time... just a little bit of R-n-R

    This is easy, after years of competing its going to happen. If it's a motivation thing cut your training or just take a break. If you just quit growing most likely you need to either come off for awhile if that's what you do or lower down to a very low maintanace dose. In 4 months or so you can start hitting it again and you'll grow.
